A science teacher in the UK has been charged with the attempted murder of one of his students.

Peter Harvey, 49, is accused of attacking 14-year-old Jack Waterhouse at All Saints' Roman Catholic School in Mansfield on Wednesday.

Mr Harvey, of Rannoch Drive, Mansfield, will appear before the town's magistrates tomorrow.

Jack was found by paramedics unconscious in a pool of blood at the entrance to a classroom in the school's science block.

He is currently in a stable condition at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, where he is being treated for serious head injuries.
